I've been watching CNN and they are peddling a **** and bull story right now about all the mass shootings in the US in the past year and the common villain is "guns." Not Islamic terrorism, no, just . . . guns. We need gun control on our military bases! Yes, that's the answer!

Plus, every silly news anchor for the past 5 hours has managed to get in some comment about how they hope there won't be a backlash against Muslims due to the Ft. Hood attack. Not, "we hope we can prevent all future terrorist attacks against our military and our citizenry," but simply "we must all work together to protect the Muslims."

Unbelievable. It is so difficult to see so many people being so stupid.

Islamic Terrorists will fear us if we don't have guns?

If it weren't for the policy of having nearly all our soldiers disarmed on base that killer could of been stopped quicker. No, guns won't deter crazy suicidal muslim terrorists, but it can stop them before they kill as many in attacks like this one.

Do I have to be the first to point out that 9/11 took place without the use of ONE gun?

Another example of CNN just missing the story, no wonder they are in last place for viewers

Aren't you glad you live in a country where have the right to buy all the arms you need to inflict a little whoop ass on your fellow classmates and Professors (like Mr Choi did at Virginia Tech) or take down the lunch time crowd at Luby's in Kileen TX or get even with the US Army like Major Hasan.
Happiness is a warm gun yeh! Bang, bang, shoot shoot!

Since, America is not serious about regulating these dangerous toys, I actually get a real charge out of these mass shooting tragedies they are real funny.

Yes, but if even one sane person on those planes had a fire arm, 9/11 would have never happened. The solution is to arm everyone who is not a criminal or lunatic.
